Todmorden High School Class of 82 are having a reunion

A GROUP of former schoolmates are to reunite for the first time in more than a quarter of a century in Todmorden this summer.

Todmorden High School’s Class of 1982 are set to meet up at the Todmorden Hippodrome Theatre on the evening of Saturday, July 7, from 7.30pm to midnight.

The event has been organised by Sue Elliot (was Shepherd) and Helen Clarkson (was Simpson) and friends have been linking up through Facebook to find out more information and say hello once again through the power of cyberspace.

Those invited to the reunion would have joined Todmorden Grammar School or Todmorden Secondary Modern in September 1977.

The schools merged the following year to become the current Todmorden High School. They would have left in either in July 1982 or stayed on through sixth form in July 1984.

Sue and Helen would love for as many people to come as possible to what they say will be an informal, chilled-out night. they have asked if anyone coming could either email Helen on or find the event on facebook and confirm so that there is an idea of numbers.

Helen says: “There is a charge of £5 to cover the cost of the room and any monies collected over and above this will go to charities in memoriam of classmates that are sadly no longer with us.

“So if you fancy finding out whether you have aged better than your old mates and are up for a night of those fantastic 80s tunes then please get in touch!”
